I was talking to a woman the other day and she was telling me that she believed when you die you go to heaven. In her belief there is no pain or torment in heaven, it's a perfect place. She said that in heaven there is nothing but happiness.
So, my question to her was that if you really believe that way why do you grieve when someone dies? Isn't that just you being selfish. Wouldn't you want them to be dead, so that they can be in heaven with pure happiness, joy and perfection?
**She didn't answer me...
Can I have some views here?
Personally I don't believe in heaven or that we go there. I am a firm believer in reincarnation... But I wanted some opinions about this. Because to me it's circular thinking and makes no sence. You are sad when someone dies, you don't want them to die, but you believe they will be in heaven? Is that selfishness or proof that you don't really believe? Or something else? Elaborate Please?

I believe in heaven/the other side is wonderful and perfect etc....
I am sad that my father died because I miss him. I wish I could have one more day with him and have that time. The fact that he is in a better place doesn't take away the pain of the loss I feel in my life on earth. I don't think death is the worst thing that can happen but It all comes down to the utter loss I have im my physical life when I lose someone I love.

You are sad when someone dies, you don't want them to die,
You are sad because you will miss them, and miss their companionship
but you believe they will be in heaven?
I'm not sure where people go after they die. Its a nice thought this "heaven" and I guess it makes some people feel better....

I want everyone to find God before they die. I don't want them to die before that,nor do I want them to die when they find God. A life with God in your heart is such a joyful experience! Everyday is new and wonderful! I feel his love pulsing through my body, and most the time it feels like I could explode from it. Heaven is great,but life can be fun too. We have our family and friends. Lets not forget the joys of being a parent, and wife. I look forward to dieing instead of dreading it b/c then I know that I will finally see God and heaven. Do I want to rush it? No,but I would not complain. Life on earth is temporary,I am looking forward to my ever lasting life.
